The Old Woman

There was an old woman, as I’ve heard tell, she went to market her eggs for to sell; she went to market all on a market day; and she fell asleep on the king’s highway. There came by a peddler whose name was Stout, he cut her petticoats all round about; he cut her petticoats up to the knees, which made the old woman to shiver and freeze. When this woman first did wake, she began to shiver and she began to shake. She began to wonder and she began to cry, “Lauk-a- mercy on me, this is none of I. But if it be I, as I do hope it be, I’ve a little dog at home, and he’ll know me; if it be I, he’ll wag his little tail, and if it be not I, he’ll loudly bark and wail!”
